Pineapple Rum

Pairing pineapple and rum is such a natural thing to do. Their tropical flavors blend together so well. You can flavor rum with any number of fruits, flowers and spices, and believe me, I have. I think my favorite is still pineapple.  So simple to make- just cut up pineapple and put in a jar. Add the rum- light or dark and leave the jar in a cool, dark place long enough for the pineapple to flavor the rum. Strain, filter, if you like and you are ready to go.
